Even if you’ve never watched a stand up routine of Kevin Hart, you’re probably aware of his television show (Real Husbands of Hollywood) or one of his many movies.

In addition to comedy, Hart has another love – basketball.

The comedian is often seen at NBA games and has participated in the NBA All-Star celebrity festivities (and even the dunk contest) for the past few years.

Hart, who is listed at 5’2, won’t ever get the luxury of playing in an NBA game but he does often find himself playing against NBA players for fun, say like a recent one-on-one against Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry.

The former Villanova star thought it would be fun to take Hart to school on the court, but little did he know he’d be facing quite the competition. Hart did his best to stick with Lowry, which ended in a crowd rising block.

And that one is going to live in the locker room forever, Kyle.
